March Athletic Club runners took on the Manchester Marathon and Silverstone race track

March runners made the switch from London to Manchester as they took on another marathon at the weekend.

Andy Cole was first home for March Athletic Club, with the flattest marathon in the UK taking in sights like Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium.

He was across the finish line with a marathon personal best of 3:11:14.

Mike and Rachel Boxall also impressed, finishing in 3:29:13 and 5:19:23 respectively.

The route took runners through the city, before heading out to Altrincham and back again.

Elsewhere, Mike Blackledge took on another iconic route at the Silverstone Half Marathon.

He got the chance to run for 13.1 miles around the famous race track that Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton won at in July.

Mike's efforts were made all the more impressive by the fact he had raced in the Virtual London Marathon just a week earlier.
